Sorry I have been so quiet, i have had a traumatic couple of weeks …. I have been at two back to back shows, The Scottish Quilting Show in Glasgow followed by Fashion and Embroidery at the NECin Birmingham … however, the clutch went on the way up and the clutch master cylinder went on the way back!!
Now trying to catch up with myself ..the only class left in March is Clare Bullock’s felting class on Friday and Saturday(23&24), we could squeeze one more if anyone wants to come very last minute .. she is teaching ‘Mapping with Prefelts, Landscape and Print’ so a fun two days ahead.
April sees the start of my creative textiles monthly class and the procion monthly class continues, both of these are full but you can always reserve a place for next year!!
Caroline Bell’s classes start this month with Spring Eco on 17&24 April, two consecutive Tuesdays, again we have a space or two at a squeeze on this course, hopefully spring will have sprung by then!
Mel Rose has two life drawing groups running on Sat 21 and Sun 22 April, both of these are full this month but there are a sprinkling of spaces in future months if you are interested.
Finally and certainly not least, Debbie Lyddon is coming to the Granary Studio to teach ‘Exploring Place’ for 4 days 26-29 April, again this one is full but I have had two cancellations for the extra class we have put on for the waiting list … 8-11 May, so, if you would like to work with this inspiring tutor, please let me know, I am sure these places will go quickly
Sorry this is a bit wordy, but hopefully you are already booked on something, if not, why dont you fill one of these spaces!
